Future Shoreditch

We're in the early stages of preparing an area action plan for Shoreditch, called Future Shoreditch. The plan will set out a vision for what Shoreditch will look like in 2034 and the planning policies to guide and manage future development and investment in the area. Once adopted, this plan will be an important document when making planning decisions in Shoreditch.

Why are we producing Future Shoreditch?

Shoreditch has experienced phenomenal growth over the past 20 years and businesses and services continue to be drawn to the area along with new residents and visitors. This growth presents great opportunities as well as challenges, particularly as rents rise and the supply of affordable workspace struggles to match demand.

Future Shoreditch will help ensure that the pressure for new development does not erode the special qualities and character of Shoreditch that draw businesses, residents and visitors to the area in the first place.

  • Thursday 20 July, 6-8pm

What happens next?

Your comments will help us to develop a range of options to manage the growth of the area. We'll be doing a consultation about the options later this year.
